  • (2021-11-22) lämp: Exactly what I needed. An indispensable tool for my work.
  • (2021-05-11) Janai Christo: Look it works. All I need is to be able to read it and sometimes copy it. And it serves that purpose. But guys, pay for it if you can. If you only need one article, then you might as well use it. But if you are a regular user, try to pay for it.
  • (2021-02-24) Luis Vega: This extension has so much promise! As of Feb 24, 2021, it works as intended in terms of decluttering, adjusting font type and size, and text display. I can feel the strain on my eyes lifted! Being able to save and manage my own pre-sets is also quite powerful. However, no matter whether I use one of the presets or customize my own, changes to the background and font colors do not work. No matter what I select, it remains in a kind of "night mode" with a dark grey background and a pale blue font. In addition, on my Mac at least, the keyboard shortcut (Ctrl+Shift+T) does not work. I think I could grow to love this extension if these issues were fixed.

  • (2019-09-29) Leon Nicaeus: Endlich eine Chrome Erweiterung mit der man was anfangen kann. Man kann sie super personalisieren, aber sie sieht nicht sonderlich modern aus.
